“I believe the future is only the past again, entered through another gate.” – Arthur Wing Pinero

Here are some gates for Cee’s Black and White Challenge – CBWC and for Dan’s Thursday Doors Challenge

Tis is the entrance gate of the British Library in London. The gates to the library grounds were designed by Lida and David Kindersley 

This is the 87-yard-long ornate steel gate of the Palace of Versailles which is decorated with 100,000 gold leaves. The Palace has been listed as a World Heritage Site for 30 years and is one of the greatest achievements in French 17th century art.

    These are beautiful gates, Teresa. I love the British Library gate. Except for the bottom photo, I prefer the black and white version. That one looks better to me in color.

    1. Teresa says:

      Thanks Dan for liking the photos. I think the colour of the bricks in the last one makes it more alive.

    A perfect selection of gates and superb photographs too.

    1. Teresa says:

      Thanks Stephen…love photographing massive gates!

    lovely collection, Techie! paano mo ginagawa yung slider so photo? ang galing!

    1. Teresa says:

      Thanks Wilma! Sa Block editor, instead na Image or Gallery search for the Image Compare tapos ilagay mo yong dalawang photos na gusto mong gamitin. Sabihan mo ko kung di mo magawa.

    That gate to the British Library is one of my favourites, so great to see it included in your selection. Good use of the image compare feature too, pairing colour and B&W versions. I think I like the colour best for the Versailles and Edinburgh shots, B&W for the others 🙂

    1. Teresa says:

      Thanks Sarah. The British Library is modern and very impressive! I quite enjoy using the slider 👍🏼

      1. Toonsarah says:

        Yes, I know the British Library very well – in fact I’ve spoken at conferences there and did some consultancy work for them a few years ago. It’s a shame more tourists don’t visit as the exhibitions are excellent 🙂

        1. Teresa says:

          Wow, must be great doing that. I am impressed with people speaking in front of large groups of people because I am a bit an introvert.

          1. Toonsarah says:

            I used to find it difficult but I had to do it a lot for work so I got used to it and even came to enjoy it 🙂

          2. Teresa says:

            That is great that you love what you are doing. Good luck to future conferences! 👍🏼

          3. Toonsarah says:

            Oh I’m retired now so doubt I’ll be doing that again!

          4. Teresa says:

            Oh are you? You look young on your profile photo.

          5. Toonsarah says:

            I’ll be 66 in October 😡 The photo was taken in 2019 so I was two years younger then!

          6. Teresa says:

            Aging gracefully!

  5. Cee Neuner says:

    Teresa, these gates are absolutely wonderful for both Dan’s and my challenges 😀 😀

    1. Teresa says:

      Thanks Cee!

    Late on the visit for ‘doors’ this week. If only the baby could get past that colic… Love all things Library related 🙂 Great post!

    1. Teresa says:

      Thanks so much… I feel for you, I remember how hard colic in babies are.
